I’ve went for an ice skating with 14 Taaruf committee members at Sunway Pyramid during the New Year holiday. It was my third time. The last time was on 2005, when I was still studying in Matric PJ.
I drive to Sunway and parked outside the new wing near Jusco. The valet parking costs me RM8 for the whole day. Its much cheaper than parking inside the basement, which cost RM2 per hour. Luckily, I was there for more than 6 hours. (6×2=RM12).
Lunch at Pizza Hut
I’ve met my friends at Pizza Hut. They told me that we are going to have lunch first and we’ll ice skating after Zohor prayer. It was my first time ordering Personal Pizza Island Supreme too. Before I went to Sunway, I’ve checked their website to confirm about the price and ice resurfacing schedule. So, during public holiday, it costs me RM21. I’m glad that I bring my own glove and socks. So I don’t have to waste another RM10 for that. For the afternoon session, they resurface at 2pm and 4pm. So we started skating at 2.30pm.
I really missed ice skating since the last time in matric. After I’ve been to main campus, I rarely went to Sunway. Besides that, its hard to get some people who enjoyed ice skating. Actually, I’m not that good. But I tried not to fall on the ice. Otherwise, my shirt and pants will get wet. If you are newbie, consider of bringing extra shirts too. Maybe you’ll also need some bandage in case your feet will blister when wearing the skating shoe.
We have fun with ice skating from 2.30pm till 5.30pm. I’m glad that I did not fall, not even once after skating for 3 hours. Since it was holiday, there are lots of people from all walks of life, kids and parents, boys and girls, newbies and professional. So, I really have to be extra careful otherwise I’ll simply hit others.
Well, I can say that most people will take lots of opportunity while ice skating. Most people will hold each others hand and skate together. Despite wearing gloves, I don’t think its nice. Many things can happen while skating. Its up to oneself to observe his/her behaviour and muamalah. I’m not being narrow minded but always take a good care of yourself while skating.
New Year Celebration: Day vs Night
I prefer going out and enjoy the whole day rather than staying up all night and watching the wasted fireworks. Night is meant for men to rest and relax. Besides that, ice skating is not open at night.
So, how’s your new year celebration? Have you try ice skating?
